As a content creator my BIGGEST takeaway the month was the announcement of the new Pin Collective at Pinterest. Here’s an opportunity to have Pinterest help you connect with brands looking for clients to help create creatives for them. If you’re interested, be sure to email them. These types of campaigns have been over the years have been one of my favorite things to do with brands. I highlighted a few here on this Brand Collaborations Board. My Memorable Holidays , Talk About Delicious Gametime and Back to School Boards are some of my favorite examples of working with Brands like Walmart, Tyson Foods, Hillshire Farms, Earths Best, PicMonkey and More!
